Reading this remark, I recognize a connaisseur who can further benefit from this sartorial aspiration, when next he visits his tailor.

Some would rather read expressions of faith in the fantasies of rarity from advertising departments; others feel better educated by well-shaped prose on the nature of local bicycle races and sponsorship in provincial France (or anywhere else.)

I haven't visited here long enough to know which segment of the community will better appreciate the "fit" of the prose that follows to touchiness about the species of other skin 1-2 fabric layers away from his her privates.

Funny that umbrage has been taken to pig, when a premium price for a saddle might be paid had consequent to the claim--DNA testing anyone?--that it was upholstered to "wild Tuscan boar hide"....or "fine Corinthian leather."

Thank you for you very keen anecdotal insight and yet another valuable contribution to the list. I think I have a pretty good idea why you might have been unsuccessful at anything... and what eBay item might you be referring to?
